As some of you might have worked out we are talking about setting up a new "Betting Exchange"?
At the moment the market is dominated by Betfair, and let's face it they have got a bit complacent.
Number Two is BETDAQ. On the horse racing front they seem to do quite well. Lots of liquidity and action on the in running markets. Not to mention their excellent tipster DAQMAN. The sports side with the possible exception of Football has never really taken off. Not for the want of effort on the part of BETDAQ PR Director Russ Wiseman, who is a member of our "Sports Exchange", and an excellent fellow. Destined for big things. Perhaps "Russ" might like to add a comment if I have mis-represented BETDAQ in anyway,
Also perhaps "Mick Stone" another one of our illustrious members:- an ex- Betfair man might like to throw in his pennyworths. Andrew "Bert" Black who surely reads this excellent site might like to say a word as well. I am sure Gordon, one or two of our other new members, and no doubt one or two of our older members may have a view as well.
So there are a few other betting exchanges out there as well, but does anyone use them?
If you click on Exchange Betting above it will take you across to "Matchbet". Friends of ours. Comments welcome.
The plan in my mind is to set up an "Alternative Betting Exchange".
It will be owned by punters, run by punters, run for the benefit of punters. By "punters", I mean gamblers, traders, sports enthusiasts, etc...
What I want to know is what do YOU think? If we set up a new "betting exchange", what would you want it to look like?
What would you want it to do?
What commision should we charge?
Should we have rubbish like "Betfair Poker" and "Casino Games", or should we be be honest and moral, and just stick to sports exchange punting?
Should the site look the old Flutter, when you knew who you were betting against?
Should we have league tables so we can all see who is "The Top Dog"?
Should it look like the "OLD FUTTER"? Should it look like "BETFAIR" or "BETDAQ"? Should it look like "MATCHBET" or one of the other "fledgling" exchanges?
It's all up to you?
Is this a goer, or am I just whistling in the wind?
Your comments would be gratefully appreciated?
